Setting Up for Sleep Success

When you need sleep, what are the best tips from the experts?

In order to have amazing sleep each night, there are a bunch of things you can do to set yourself up for success. You don’t need to spend a lot of money or time in order to see a huge change in your sleep pattern. With simple steps, you can be on your way to healthier sleep in no time.

The room

The room that you sleep in has a lot to do with how easily you fall asleep and stay asleep. If there is clutter in your room, spend just 15 minutes a day working on cleaning it up. Start with the flat surfaces. Begin by simply removing everything from the top of a dresser or side table. Place every item onto your bed. Then grab a rag and wipe off any dust that has accumulated. Anything that doesn’t belong, find a home for it. Only return the items that you absolutely need on the surface. You are sure to feel more relaxed with clear open spaces free.  

Nighttime routine

Three hours before you plan to sleep, be sure to wear your blue light blocking lenses. Limiting intense blue light from artificial lighting will help regulate your circadian rhythm by triggering melatonin production. Developing a pattern of using your blue light blocking lenses prior to going to sleep will ensure you are set up for nighttime success.

Practice gratitude

Did you know that simply remembering and being grateful for 3 things prior to going to sleep can actually alter your brain chemistry? It can make it easier to fall asleep while also regulating stress hormones in your brain and body. You can simply think of three things you are grateful for. You can also start a gratitude journal. Choose three things from your day that you are thankful to have. It can be something small or something grand. Everything counts. For an extra boost, share your three things with a partner, kids, family, or friends. They can share what they are thankful for too. 

Getting enough sleep is vital for feeling great the next day. If falling asleep has been difficult, be sure to try these out.
